Mine should be being delivered today - have Live Chatted with Very a few times and been given 2 tracking numbers, neither of which seem to work anywhere. The latest information I was given was:
"The tracking shows the order is still being processed at the supplier, there may be a slight delay on the order. If the order does not arrive by 7pm delivery will commence within 24 hours"

Same thing, got tracking number from chat but when checked it says

"The system is currently unable to confirm the status of your item with reference B*********GB. Please try again later.

Special Delivery Guaranteed™ items are first tracked when they have reached our mail centre. This may be late in the evening on the day the item was sent.

Information on your Special Delivery Guaranteed™ item is not yet available."

I will try reaching Very on the chat again and seeing what they say. A bit disappointing really, they should have a better way of communicating with customers and keeping us updated.

Hmmm, I guess it might not be until tomorrow then if its *potentially* going to arrive late with them today...... As long as its before the expected date from Apple (4th-10th October) I shouldn't complain really!

Anyone else's stating delivery by October 1st ? 128GB plus in black. They've told me that's the date it should be delivered, just wondering if there's any chance it'll arrive earlier.

Just been on chat with Very and they are still adamant that my phone will arrive tomorrow as stated on the order page of my account... Won't give me any tracking information as order is still processing...

If it actually turns up it will be a miracle TBH...

Hmmm, i wont hold out for mine arriving today then (even though Very have assured me it will be). If it arrives tomorrow I'll still be a happy chap!

Royal mail delivery van has just been in my street, no stop at my house so safe to say mine is not arriving today - all hopes on tomorrow then.

I've lost all hope. Going to try reserve one early tomorrow morning. Seeing everyone get their's on release day when Very promised me release day in the first place is painful.

Well it seems I will be iPhone 7+less for another day......after speaking to Royal Mail, as they are being posted via next day special delivery, if its not been posted already its likely to arrive tomorrow now - Very are still saying to wait until at least 9pm tonight tho.......the wait continues!

If you have a tracking no from Very then you'll get it tomorrow. Their supplier uses pre printed special delivery labels but until they are scanned via Royal Mail they are not active. Thus, they should become active around 7pm later for delivery before 1pm tomorrow. They have to come se Royal Mail special delivery due to the value but it's a great service.

Ah ok, frustratingly as Very informed me it was being delivered today I put the address as my work address (happily I work from a friends house but still annoying). I'll just have to bug them tomorrow and make sure they stay in so they dont miss it ;)

Yeah, have kept my phone with Apple as a backup as delivery is not due until 4-10 October. Will have to see who gets it to me first :)

Not to try and upset anyone - just genuinely trying to be helpful and set expectations - but if they're just sent Special Delivery without the Saturday Guarantee, they may not arrive until Monday. Royal Mail are really good at trying to get normal Special Delivery delivered on Saturdays - but they're not guaranteed unless Very have specifically paid for the extra guarantee. If they're all pre-paid then it's unlikely to be the case.

My iPhone and Watch have been despatched by Apple and are on their way to Very so all being well Very should send them out tonight for delivery tomorrow!

It's pointless anybody contacting them on Twitter or their Live Chat. The advisors work from home (some abroad) and can only see the information on Your Account that you can see so they will his agree with whatever the tracking says (or in the case of one of their Twitter advisors tell me that I won't be getting it until November! He completely misunderstood what I was asking!)
